Cooking Preparation

Cooking is something many enjoy doing, some find it a
task. Being organized in the kitchen can help greatly
in the preparation involved in cooking.

Whether you have a huge gourmet kitchen or a
kitchenette, knowing how to keep it organized is a
good place to start.

Here are some tips;

1) Keep your utensils in a place located closely to
the area in which you will prepare your food. Your
cooking utensils would do well in a container or on
hooks right at arms length to the stove, so having
they hand will keep things running smoothly.

2) Spices, if you are one that adds your spices as you
cook, keep them in either a spice crackle or a drawer
within immediate reach. Keep them in alphabetical
order or in order of type. Make sure the labels are
easily seen.

3) That infamous clutter of plastic containers can be
frustrating in the kitchen. When searching for a
matching lid and bottom, you can waste time searching
and find you getting frustrated. Go through your
containers regularly and make sure you have the
matches of tops and bottoms, and make sure they are in
an orderly fashion so you can grab them easily.

4) Your pots, pans, and bake ware should be kept
together by type in an easy to grab place. Having a
pan at the back part of the cupboard can really
frustrate a person who is trying to get their cooking
tasks done. Keeping your items in an orderly fashion
will make it easy to grab what you want.

5) Your dishes, cutlery, and glasses don’t needs to be
in your cooking area. They can be in a cupboard area
that is further from the stove and closer to where you
serve from. This keeps the area around you cooking and
preparation space open for items such as pots, pans,
and spices.

Remember, one of the frustrations of cooking is not
being organized. Having a well-organized kitchen will
minimize frustration and free you up for other things,
like eating.
